Several weeks ago we set up a  family fall session to have our yearly pictures taken. We have tried so many different people and places over the past four years from private photographers who were way over priced to portrait studios who want to get you in and out as fast as possible. We have had some great sessions and some pretty great pictures in the past but none compare to Two Clicks Away Photography in Snow Camp, NC. Two years ago we had our photos taken with them and they were just AWESOME.

But.....this past session was something we could never have expected. We seen the photos and fell head over in heels IN LOVE. They were beautiful!!!! Breathtaking! Maybe I am biased because they are pictures of my lovely little family but I couldn't love them more and I wanted to share them :)

I am working on photo gallery wall behind our couch and these will make it so beautiful!

BOO! Happy Halloween 2013!

It's offically NOVEMBER!! Holiday season is here and I am over the moon excited! Time to start shopping, baking, crafting, and spending a whole lot of time with the people I love the most.

But first...HALLOWEEN! Hensley is at the age where it is the absolute best, most fun day ever!

This past Thursday was Halloween and it was one of the ones yet! We had a very busy, fun, happy day. There was the annual Wee Shine Preschool Fall Festival, where we played a ton of games, talked with friends, got more candy then one kid could ever eat and had lunch with some of our favorite people!

                                                          I was just about as excited as Hensley :)

How cute is Hensley's Preschool class!?!

His school has a huge school wide fall festival to celebrate it's always a ton of fun!!!

Our friends Rylie and her mom Danielle came :) 

We visited Grandma and Grandpa as well was a trip to Granny and PawPaw's to trick or treat and visit :) He loved showing off his costume! He wore it for a full week before it was even Halloween and I have a feeling it will be getting a lot of use even after Halloween!!!
We rested up for a few hours did a little shopping, grabbed some dinner at Moe's with the William's family and then it was off to the big event...TRICK OR TREATING!!!

While trick or treating he random said several times "This is awesome!!" and came up at the end of the night with a huge hug for me saying he had so much fun! Makes it all worth it!!

Happy Halloween :) Click here for the cutest little video ever :)

Andy and I celebrated our anniversary this week too :) He is an amazing man who I love with all my heart. He has grown and changed so much in the past year and I am so proud of him in so many ways. He is an amazing father who works incredibly hard to provide for his family and give me the amazing gift to stay at home with Hensley. He is funny and smart and strong. He loves us with his whole heart! To watch him with our son is such a blessing and I don't know what I would ever do without him! Love you Babe :)

Emily and I had a little craft night and made these turkey wreaths because we are so darn excited about Thanksgiving :) 

Until next year! :) Happy Halloween :)
